24 Adapt A New Attitude-Dare to live transparently

We live in a society that seems to encourage the disparagement of others. One of the biggest culprits is the media, television entertainment/news, magazines etc and how we participate and perpetuate voluntarily and involuntarily when we knowingly partake loving the salacious gossip and critical teardowns in the workplace, clubs, coffee shops, homes etc. When we purchase/burrow, read those malicious tidbits then compound the problem by going to the various social media platforms/blogs (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Youtube, Digg, Tumble, Wordpress, Blogger etc,) to propagate the nasty toxic behavior that unfortunately has now become the norm. Yet we are surprised and horrified at the escalation of bullying taking on new and gruesome dimensions in the cyber world and it’s disheartening consequence. People who salivate at the power given by “Anonymity” behind fake names and profiles like gossip rags with their “close source,” to the person’s character they are maliciously maligning and attempting to destroy with“freedom of speech.”

In this new year, let us adapt a new attitude and dare to stand up for what is right, not because it would gain us points and popularity but because if the shoe were on the other foot and we were being maligned, harassed and bullied we would want someone to champion us and dare to rise up and take a stand on our behalf. Let us dare to NOT participate in gossip. Let us dare to speak directly to the ones we feel is offending/offended us. Let us dare to be transparent in how we think, reason, behave and deal with people. Let us dare to live a life with personal integrity even if it means standing outside the “inner circle.”

It would benefit us all ….

  5. Happy New Year my friend. Yeah I agree with you, but I don't think things will change all that much in the new year. Let's face it, human nature being the way it is and all. As the saying goes, "To thine own self be true" because everything else is really out of your control. As you say be transparent, which just means be honest and hope your honesty will affect someone else positively.

  12. WORD.

    Although some twisted minds thrive on the bitter habit of maligning others and perpetuating gossips but I still believe we can do it if we would only start doing as we would be done by and stop hiding under the cloak of virtual anonymity.

    Wish you a very beautiful 2015.

    1. It starts with us. Each individual in our little corner of the world.
      if we take a stand and not allow others to pollute our minds and space with degrading and toxic conversations by stopping them and holding them accountable for what is coming out of their mouths it would be the beginning of a beautiful symphony of love. Zero bullshit tolerance. Imagine if each person did that, oh what a world it would be.
